Knee Traction

The knee is one of the largest, most complex joints in the body, making it subject to many different conditions. Consequently, the medical providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine offer multiple treatment options for knee pain relief. Knee traction is a comfortable, non-invasive modality for decreasing knee pain and inflammation while enhancing the recovery period. This technique has produced notable results for patients suffering from Osteoarthritis, Tendinitis, chronic pain, sports injuries, failed surgeries and more. Laser therapy usually accompanies knee traction to produce the optimal effect.

Knee Traction Information:

Traction provides axial decompression of the joint space, which allows the laser to permeate and heal the affected areas. Though our providers generally recommend the two modalities in a package, it can also produce noticeable results without the added benefit of the laser. This method is proven to be more effective than many traditional approaches and can potentially help patients avoid knee surgery. There are no uncomfortable sensations during treatment, and sessions usually last about 15 minutes per knee.

Knee Traction is available only through self pay pricing and costs $60 per session. Our providers typically recommend six sessions for acute knee pain and 12 sessions for chronic pain. We also offer free consultations for those interested in knee pain relief in Austin, Texas.

Call (512) 442-2727 to schedule a knee traction appointment at our South Austin facility. You may also refer to our Services and Conditions pages for more information on treatment techniques we offer.
